go to pete williams which is live in washington. what's the latest? >> thanks. >> pete? >> sorry. good day. i think we have a better idea of why. we see this extraordinary security environment here in boston and the suburbs. understandable why in water where they believe that he may be holed up. that explains the situation around there. they think they know where he is, but not positive. there is a concern for the last couple of hours that he and his brother may have had accomplices and those accomplices may be at large and could be dangerous. this morning authorities found and disarmed another bomb in the boston area. i say another bomb. i mean a bomb today in the boston area. there is a concern about whether there could be other devices. you put all of those factorsing to and that's the explanation for the unprecedentedly strict security in boston and the suburbs right now. >> when you talk about the motivation and their state of mind and why they did what they did including the attempted robbery of that 7-11, you have got more information on the carjacking that occurred. they
news justice correspondent pete williams. michael, let me ask you about the things we heard at the news conference. hundreds if not thousands of news photos and videos taken at the finish line yesterday, they're particularly interested in ones that were taken, obviously, during, right before and right after these bombs exploded. it seems like an incredible pain staking search, almost a need until a haystack. what in particular will they be looking for? >> well, it is a need until a haystack but at least now they have enough of the timeline to know the period during which they really want to dig in to this media video, photographs and the like. what they're probably going to be looking for is anyone who looks a little bit suspicious. frankly, they don't know what that is at this point and such pain staking work. a lot of what shows up on these photos and videos won't actually seem relevant until they get additional information from somewhere else and this will take hundreds and hundreds of man hours of pouring through this. whether there will be someone wearing clothing suspicious o
